Retired Marine generals have a high regard for each other
Retired Marine generals touted each other to Trump as Pentagon chiefI am not surprised. They are both successful Marines who are well respected by the troops. Mattis does have a flare that tends to grab the attention of his troops and his enemies. I like that.
Longtime colleagues James N. Mattis and John F. Kelly are seen as contenders for a Cabinet position. When President-elect Donald Trump met last weekend with them, each recommended the other as secretary of defense, a source said.
